That's not exactly a horrible failure mode.  People can just add it to the
list of files to clean.  Or you could go with the minimal working change
here, namely an output variable that contains the list of files that may
be created by configure.

The important part is to somewhere document the list of files that
configure can create so that people who don't want to use Automake can add
them to the makefile rules that they prefer to maintain by hand.
